TOP 10 REASONS TO HOST YOUR EVENT AT CHAUTAUQUA
WE NARROWED IT DOWN FOR YOU
1. SPECTACULAR VIEWS
CLOSE TO BOULDER’S ICONIC FLATIRONS MOUNTAINS
Chautauqua’s cottages and lodges are nestled directly below the Flatirons mountains, one of Colorado’s top visitor destinations with over a million visitors each year. Your group will marvel at dramatic views in every direction. No need to drive your party to a photo spot, just step outside your cottage door or venue to take your event pictures against one of the most glorious backdrops in the USA.
2. PERFECT LOCATION
MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN BOULDER AND THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO
Explore the mountains, Boulder’s famous Pearl Street Mall, and the stunning CU Boulder campus, all just minutes from Chautauqua. There is truly something for everyone, from outdoor activities of all types, to fine dining, to great shopping and nightclubs – all within walking distance!
3. NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK
THE COLORADO CHAUTAUQUA WAS FOUNDED IN 1898!
Of the 26 National Historic Landmarks in Colorado, only two offer lodging. Step back in time and become part of Chautauqua’s living history by staying in a historic cottage or attending an Auditorium or Community House event. For history buffs, we recommend our self-guided history tour, or read The Grand Assembly located in every cottage!
4. RESTORED HISTORIC SPACES
CLASSIC STYLE, MODERN AMENITIES
Our indoor and outdoor meeting and event venues cater to a wide range of events and add distinction to every meeting or celebration. Select from larger spaces like the recently renovated Community House, complete with all-new lighting, state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, and elegant interiors. If your group prefers a more intimate venue with lodging, consider the Mary H. Galey Cottage or Missions House Lodge. For an outdoor event with a view, choose the Auditorium Terrace or Picnic Shelter!
5. SAFE ACCOMMODATIONS
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY
Chautauqua’s stand-alone cottages offer the ultimate in privacy and safety. Guests have their own cottage, most with screened porches, and never share hallways, stairways or elevators unless they prefer to stay in one of our historic lodges. Ceiling fans circulate fresh mountain air, while allergen-free floor coverings and our “Colorado Clean” hygiene measures take health and safety to Flatirons Heights.
6. PLENTY OF LODGING OPTIONS
CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE
Your party can choose from studio cottages to eight-bedroom lodges, with many accessible options. Our spaces offer complimentary wi-fi, parking, and full kitchens or kitchenettes. Many cottages and lodge rooms have been recently restored for guest comfort while retaining their unique character and charming vintage touches.
7. UNLIMITED EXPERIENCES
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Chautauqua is famous for its year round arts, culture and entertainment and is surrounded by miles of hiking trails and open-space. Make your gathering even more memorable by adding one or more of our experiences such as mindfulness, yoga, guided hikes, forest bathing and history tours. Our experiences curator can also arrange guided nature hikes, skiing, fly fishing, horseback riding, golfing, spa treatments and just about anything else you can imagine! Chautauqua offers a wide array of fun team-building opportunities, including frisbee on the green, yoga, 3-on-3 basketball, pickle ball, and picnics, as well as catered gatherings at any of our venues.
8. MEMORIES THAT LAST
MAKE YOUR EVENT SPECIAL
Chautauqua’s venues are not the cookie-cutter meeting rooms you find at other hotels. Our meeting spaces are infused with historic charm and have a unique ambiance that makes any business meeting, retreat, wedding, birthday, or celebration special. Host a cocktail hour on the Auditorium terrace, ice cream social at the General Store, or a Western-style BBQ at the Picnic Shelter. Catering is easy and our friendly guest service team is here to help.
